Park “Bukasu” located on the west of Serra da Estrela, is a former territory of the monastery carefully guarded by the monks of the Order of the Carmelites since the 17th century. Age-old cedars brought to the country from Goan are abundantly planted on the huge territory (more than 400 hectares) of the monastery. In addition to the relict trees, the park has about 400 species of rare plants. The center of the reserve is the San Mamede Ridge, a habitat for bears. The protected natural area is a traditional place for eco-tourism popular in the modern world.
